Pros: 50% off your order
Cons: no benfits
It is a very fast pace work environment. However, there are no benefits. I have learned a lot working at papa johns management has really brought me far such as patience with customers. Multitasking is a big part to the job . The co-workers are pretty amazing some days are not always good but that's everywhere. The hardest part about papa johns is there – more... is no set hour to leave because being in a food business its not about do this much at this time its all about the customers and when will they stop ordering. I enjoy money that's the most favorite part of the job . – less

This was my starting job and I would come in and make pizza's for the customers, eventually I moved up to management and being preforming opening and closing procedures. This is a great job and it teaches food safety, customer service, and the company I was working for even paid for management to go to Dave Ramsey's seminars to help with money management. – more... They were supportive and really reached out to their employees; honestly I didn't feel like another body but actually somebody when I worked there. – less

Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – September 24, 2014
Pros: easy as pie, very fair pay with tips
Cons: no free evenings
Easy job for the most part, learning the in's and out's of making pizza and taking customer orders was more difficult than the driving aspect of the job. For the most part the job's hours are flexible, however you will be expected to work evenings and weekends and if you somehow avoid doing that, you'll miss out on where the money is.
The top of the line pizza chain. But it's still just pizza...
Insider, Shift Leader (Former Employee), Castle Rock, CO & Melbourne, FL – September 24, 2014
Pros: very easy work
Cons: horrible hours, night and weekend work, low pay
If you want to work at the most professional pizza place then Papa John's is the place. Expect to only work nights and weekends unless you're very lucky. If you're an insider expect about 15 hours a week, 5-8 nights and weekends making minimum wage. If you are a manager, expect your schedule to never be consistent. When you get down to it, your success – more... all depends on the GM you work for. I've had great experiences working for this company and not so great ones. – less
